Concentration refers to the mental effort you direct toward whatever you’re working on or learning at the moment. Concentration is beneficial both in and out of meditation practice. As we cultivate a mind that is able to focus, we are able to be present more deeply in other meditation practices.
Most people forget things more readily as they age, and decreased concentration can accompany memory loss. Head or brain injuries, such as concussion, as well as certain mental health conditions can also affect concentration.
From a more Buddhist perspective, concentration is an important factor of the path. The Buddha taught about developing samadhi, or concentration as a necessary part of awakening.
Some conditions that can affect concentration and steps to take if trying to increase concentration on your own just doesn’t seem to help.
